I can use CLOSED. I just wanted to ensure I was following the recommended or best practice.
As this is an internal thing it should be OK for now. I was wondering what would happen if a closed licenses was updated, as nothing would currently note the md5 change.
The mega manual mentions CLOSED in 7 places. One of those places also lists "Proprietary" as a value so I could used either in some cases. Based on my reading of the manual "Proprietary" would not be exempt from setting up the LIC_FILES_CHKSUM, but CLOSED would be.
